how to detect parent to child process relationship in ObRegisterCallbacks pre-operation-callback

ilikewindowskernelilikewindowskernel Member Posts: 4

hi guys,
writing my first driver that uses "ObRegisterCallbacks" to intercept handle creation attempts to my process.
but when my process is created the creator also "creates" (it did call CreateProcess :dizzy: ) a handle to my process which triggers a false alert.

is there any-way to detect that the handle creation is from the "parent" process so i can make my alerting code ignore it?

thanks in advance :)
